If you are dropping by for Thistlekeeping?
It’s showing up soon.
Instead of Saturday? I’ll be sharing everything on Monday.
But until then? I have the SWEETEST thing to share with you. Have you read the Worst Day Ever Poem? If you need to start the weekend with a little encouragement?
I had to move Thistlekeeping because it really needed its own post and today?
Today on Day 11 of “12 Days of Getting Ready for Christmas” with my incredible friend Leslie from My 100-Year-Old Home it’s all about Christmas tree skirts. Remember the first post I ever shared on the blog? It was all about my Christmas tree skirt—or lack thereof.
Trust me. I know how important Christmas tree skirts are.
They make the tree so much cuter.
So I did a little research and found 14 tree skirts that are the CUTEST.
Before I share all the Christmas tree skirts with you? It wouldn’t be a Christmas post without a little DIY
I wanted to give you some DIY ideas you can add under the tree:
- Tree Urn: Instead of putting the tree on the floor? Add it to an urn instead.
- Sled Skirt: Instead of a traditional tree skirt, use an old wooden sled as a base.
- Snowdrift Skirt: Create a winter wonderland at the base of your tree by shaping white blankets or faux fur into gentle snowdrifts.
- Vintage Suitcase Display: Stack vintage suitcases of different sizes under the tree instead of a tree skirt.
- Floating Ornament Garland: Hang a garland made of a clear fishing line adorned with hanging ornaments just above the floor. It creates the illusion that the ornaments are magically floating beneath the tree.
- Wooden Crate Village: Arrange wooden crates in a village formation around the tree.
- Quilted Tree Skirt: Make a tree skirt from a patchwork of old holiday-themed quilts or blankets.
- Book Tree Skirt: Stack vintage books around the base of the tree.
- Decorate With Pinecones: Add pinecones to baskets around the base of the tree.
- Toolbox Tree Skirt: Place a toolbox against the base of the tree instead of a tree skirt.
Let’s look at some of the tree skirts I found.
1. Sequin tree skirt
An entire tree skirt made out of sequins.
2. Faux fur tree skirt
Look how soft and furry this tree skirt is.
It looks just like snow (and it’s under $11).
3. Double-sided Reindeer Tree Skirt
This is almost like two tree skirts in one.
It’s reversible and ties in place.
4. Burlap Sleighride Tree Skirt
I hear those sleigh bells jingling.
Look how cute this tree skirt is with Santa and the reindeers.
5. Candy cane tree skirt
Make a bold statement under the tree.
This tree skirt is so sweet.
6. Wooden Tree Collar
Change it up with a tree collar instead of a skirt.
This rustic tree collar is such a great alternative for the tree.
7. Blue and white snowflake tree skirt
The only thing cuter than blue and white?
A tree skirt with blue and white snowflakes.
8. Woven Tree Collar
This woven tree collar is one of the best-selling tree skirt alternatives.
It’s a tree collar classic.
You can see the woven tree collar here.
9. Galvanized Tree Collar
This tree collar looks like it arrived from the Christmas tree farm.
I love the graphic and the galvanized metal exterior.
10. Red Ruffled Tree Skirt
This tree skirt has ruffles for days.
It takes a basic tree skirt to the next level.
Here are a few more tree skirt options:
- this jute skirt with a ruffled edge
- this star shaped tree skirt
- this woven hyacinth tree collar
- this buffalo check tree skirt
One last idea?
If you don’t have a tree skirt?
You can always wrap a blanket—like this plaid throw here—in a pinch.
It works amazingly well—especially because it was covered up with presents.
Happy tree skirting.
You got this.
